Griffin Bay Bookstore is one of 60 selected bookstores across the nation to participate in a live interview on Tuesday, Sept. 16 with noted author Philip Roth on “Indignation Day,” when his latest novel – Indignation – is released.
The webcast event, sponsored by the publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, will feature an hour-long interview conducted by upcoming author Benjamin Taylor. Although the webcast is not interactive, participating bookstores have submitted questions for the discussion with Roth, who has written some of America’s great novels: Goodbye Columbus, Portnoy’s Complaint, American Pastoral and Everyman.
Roth’s Indignation is his 25th novel, and it is Roth at his best, describing the life and journey of a young American man during the Korean War era.
Participating bookstores in Washington, in addition to Griffin Bay Bookstore, are University Bookstore in Seattle and Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park. The September 16 “Indignation Day” event is free of charge and begins at 5:00 p.m. Griffin Bay Bookstore will have signed first editions of the novel available for purchase.
American readers can expect to participate in more webcast events, a new and exciting way of bringing contemporary authors to bookstores and book clubs for interactive discussions.
